HBO’s Minx, which premiered earlier this 12 months and was just lately canceled, will end manufacturing on Season 2 and start procuring round to different platforms. According to The Wrap, though Minx has been pulled from HBO Max, the present was per week from wrapping Season 2 production–and will end out that week to finish all remaining episodes.
“We’ve been removed from HBO Max but we’re still finishing the season,” star Jake Johnson mentioned on Instagram. “So thankfully they didn’t halt production. We’re about a week away from being finished shooting.” Johnson added that Seasons 1 and a couple of will likely be shopped to different potential properties, together with concepts for a hopeful Season 3.
Set within the Nineteen Seventies, Minx is a few “young feminist from Los Angeles who creates an unlikely bond with his editor as they set out to create the first women’s erotic magazine.” In addition to Johnson, the Ellen Rapoport-created sequence stars Ophelia Lovibond, Michael Angarano, Jessica Lowe, Oscar Montoya, Lennon Parham, and Idara Victor.
“We appreciate all the online support,” Johnson writes. “We love making the show and hope to continue to. It’s a crazy business, and that’s partly what’s so additive about it.”
Earlier this week, Minx, alongside flagship HBO sequence Westworld, plus Love Life and Gordita Chronicles had been slated to be pulled from HBO Max. This is all occurring, apparently, as Warner Bros. Discovery’s new CEO David Zaslav pivots among the firm’s companies to the world of “free ad-supported streaming TV services,” or FAST platforms. Zaslav is reportedly doing a year-end monetary overview, and the HBO Max slate of programming has been and continues to be affected by these monetary measures. The affected sequence will, reportedly, be moved to a different service in some unspecified time in the future sooner or later.
